Body of Water

"Where I'm from, the sun don't shine
We keep the lights on all the time"

Billy Bragg could have been singing about San Francisco last Wednesday. The fog was very heavy, and I didn't see the sun all day, even though I drove 45 miles around the bay to Fremont.

This was the same day a container ship smacked into the Bay Bridge and spilled 58,000 gallons of oil. The first reports were of no oil spill. Then just 140 gallons. Finally, the ships draft was measured and compared to the draft before the collision. The arithmetic was done, and the true extent of the the spill was known.
